Livraria da Travessa
This store, traditional in the city center and opened recently in Ipanema, is a must for book and jazz music lovers. It sells mostly imported books on photography, cinema and the arts in general, but you will find a nice selection of all subjects, and bestsellers too. It also sells CDs and calendars. Browsing here is a delight, with jazz music playing in the background, and a small cafe in the mezzanine where you can eat snacks while paging your newly acquired books.
This bookstore already became a meeting point for all tribes in Rio: from executives to struggling writers, from high school students to the Mental Health professional, from serious Arts & Music consumers to the occasional gift buyers, etc. not only to the local "cariocas" but also to to foreigners during their stay in the city.
